Anthony Wayne is many things, but a great school is not one of them. While there are some decent teachers, there are also a lot of teachers only there for a paycheck. Teachers not actually teaching and finding excuses to waste time in class (ie movies, chatting up the 'popular' kids or showing up 10 minutes into the period) are just some of the issues with the faculty. Even the 'better' teachers are often less than knowledgable about what they are supposedly teaching. As a graduate this past year, I could teach half the classes I took better than these so called 'professionals.' Honors and AP classes generally have better teachers and students who actually want to learn, but AP test prep is somewhat lacking at times and the focus is not always on academics. Regular classes are plagued by students who couldn't care less about school and interrupt class, and teachers who will not discipline them so others can learn. Teaching is blank memorization, with no focus on critical thinking. The administration is a joke. They are only interested in school spirit and community involvement, while academics are put on the back burner. If you are looking for a great education, look elsewhere.

We are a great school district. We are in need of new buildings but we still maintain our excellent status with great families, teacher, and administrators.

Great teachers, great staff, wonderful administrators, awesome kids! having financial issues, several levies turned down in recent months because of economy.

Both of our children graduated from AWHS (daughter 05, son 08). We were always pleased with the teachers and culture of the school. AWHS has high academic standards for its students and is willing to all it can to help each student reach those standards.

Not enough focus on real education, solely driven by OGT test results. Not providing rounded education for students. Too many fog days for ridiculous reasons. Failed to aduequately financially plan and control cost. Built unneeded 'gold plated' administration building. Very irresponsible with the tax payers money.

When I was a student at Anthony Wayne, I considered the academics slightly above average. However, after four years of college with a major in education, I have come to understand how privileged I was to graduate at this fine school. The teachers are most certainly AWHS's greatest asset, especially those who teach the Honors and AP courses. If parents continue to care about their children's education and support levies, this district will continue to equip students with the tools, passion and discipline necessary to succeed in college and in life. Don't take this extraordinary district for granted.

Anthony Wayne is one of the best school districts in the area. Adequate funding allows resources other schools could only dream of. A child attending Anthony Wayne is a privledged one and academically, one could not ask for much more. The college preparation is especially well done. A move to the district would be a wonderful investment for yourself and your child.

Most of the High School Faculty are very effective and caring. However, the French Dept is sub standard. Student conduct is not constantly enforced. If you come from the right family, it seems nothing happens. The dress code is a joke. The entire HS administration is new and will need to correct poor communications/morale within the Faculty.

This school is great! They have a wonderfull sports program, great test scores, a nice school enviorment, parents and teachers are both very involved. The only downfall is that people are moving to the area for the good school and are bringing in kids with bad attitude and the parents are voting agains necessary levys if they want a good school you have to pay 4 it. Keep the dirtbags out of the school!

My daughter attended AWHS and was in the choir she actually loved going to school and all the teachers they really get involved with the students. She went to all the games and dances and not once said a bad thing about the school. To this day she still has quite a few friends from AWHS she is still in contact with. Excellant school

About the tests


In 2012-2013 Ohio used the Ohio Graduation Test (OGT) to test students in grade 10 in reading, writing, math, science and social studies. State averages displayed on public school profiles include public schools only. State averages displayed on private school profiles include private schools only. The OGT is a high school graduation requirement for public schools and chartered private schools. The OGT is a standards-based test, which means it measures how well students are mastering specific skills defined by the state of Ohio. The goal is for all students to score at or above proficient on the test.

About the tests


Ohio uses the Performance Index to provide an overall indication of how well students perform on its standardized tests each year. The Performance Index scores are based upon how well each student does on all tested subjects in grades 3 through 8 and 10. Schools and districts earn anywhere from 1.2 points for each student scoring at the advanced level to zero points for each untested student. The Performance Index ranges between 0 and 120, with 100 as the statewide goal for all students.

No Value-Added data was reported for this school.

About the tests


In 2010-2011, the Ohio Department of Education used the Value-Added Measure to show how much growth students made on the Ohio Achievement Test since the last school year. The state expects that student test scores will show an average year's worth of growth compared to test scores from the previous year. Ohio's Value-Added Measure is not the same as Adequate Yearly Progress (AYP), a federal measure which uses different criteria.

What is the GreatSchools Rating?

The GreatSchools rating is a simple tool for parents to compare schools based on test scores, student academic growth, and college readiness. It compares schools across the state, where the highest rated schools in the state are designated as “Above Average” and the lowest “Below Average.” It is designed to be a starting point to help parents make baseline comparisons. We always advise parents to visit the school and consider other information on school performance and programs, as well as consider their child's and family's needs as part of the school selection process.
